A Closer Look At Musical Cast Of Fox’s ‘Monarch’

Monarch (FOX)

Monarch is finally coming to Fox after months of advertisements and promotions. The show has been non-stop advertising for the show since early summer, and the country music drama musical series will finally premiere on Sunday night, September 11.

While this show was supposed to hit last year, the pandemic slowed things down, but it is finally time to see the country musical drama. Here is a look at what you can expect in the show, and the amazing musical cast of Monarch.

What is Monarch about?

Monarch is a musical drama about a country music family, the Romans. The family’s leaders are Dottie Roman (Susan Sarandon) and Albie Roman  (Trace Adkins). They have created a country music dynasty together, but things are not what they seem to be. Roman’s daughter Nicky Roman (Anna Friel) steps in to protect the dynasty’s reign in country music while ensuring her own stardom.

As the TV spots have shown, Monarch looks like it is as much a crime drama as it is a musical one. There are lots of guns, secrets, conspiracies, and danger throughout the entire trailer. The cast is also pretty huge for Monarch. The actors involved are Susan Sarandon, Trace Adkins, Anna Friel, Joshua Sasse, Beth Ditto, Meagan Holder, Inigo Pascual, Adam Croasdell, Martha Higareda, and Emma Milani.
